I’m a usually a free market kind of guy, mostly because the free market, or at least our version of it, has been good to me and my family. That being said, I understand why people think check cashing stores are ripoffs and why they should be regulated more. I think they serve a purpose, giving those without bank accounts access to their funds, but their fees are extraordinary and deserve inspection.
So, who better to inspect them than the Internets Celebrities? This nine minute clip is worth every minute both in informational and entertainment value.
This video courtesy of Consumerist, Editor Ben Popken makes a cameo too.
